Once-Daily Tadalafil May Improve Signs and Symptoms of BPH

July 26, 2009

There is enough data available to support once-a-day use of tadalafil in men with erectile dysfunction, and signs and symptoms of BPH. This is the finding, reported by UroToday, of a recent study on the effects of tadalafil on benign prostatitic hyperplasia.

The study included sexually active men with ED, who also suffered BPH and lower urinary tract symptoms, such as intermittency, urgency, incomplete emptying, weak urinary stream, urinary frequency, straining and nocturia.

The result of the study showed significant improvements from baseline with once-daily tadalafil in all stratifications. Hereby suggesting that once-daily tadalafil may be effective in treating a diversified group of men suffering from BPH and other lower urinary tract symptoms.


The Link Between Your Health And Your Erection

November 12, 2007

There is definitely a connection between common medical health conditions and the state of your erection. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol can narrow blood vessels, and contribute to reduced blood flow, which is critical to healthy erectile function. Changes in your erection can a sign of erectile dysfunction.

The inability to achieve and maintain a erection long enough to complete having sex is known as erectile dysfunction, or ED. Most men experience these conditions occasionally, which can be cause by other condition such as stress, obesity, lack of exercise, lack of sleep and depression. But if they occur frequently, you should talk to your doctor immediately.

Difficulty getting and maintaining an erection can be embarrassing, and not really a topic of conversation especially if you are the victim. But knowing that the problem can be fixed, is good reason for dialog.

Your doctor would diagnosed and treat the underlying diseases. This could take some time to accomplish, and as in the case of diabetes and high blood pressure, you may have to take daily medication for many years. But you won’t have to wait another day to have great sex again.

There is an erectile dysfunction medication that works harmoniously with your other daily medications. Ask your doctor about Levitra. This product works for most men with diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, including those taking more than one type of medication. If you are taking nitrate drugs, don’t take this medication.

Smoking and Obesity May Increase the Risk of Erectile Dysfunction

July 9, 2006

A Health Professionals Follow-up Study by the department of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard reported that obesity and smoking are strongly associated with a greater risk of erectile dysfunction. The participants in the study reported very good erectile functions, and no chronic diseases before 1986. The researchers made adjustments to the results to account for reported prostate cancer treatments, which lead to erectile dysfunction.

The researchers found the obesity and smoking were associated with the development of ED. The findings strongly suggest that regular physical activity plays an important roll in averting erectile dysfunction. The study also showed an association of erectile dysfunction with coronary heart disease.


Understanding Erectile Dysfunction is Knowing When to Treat it

December 4, 2005

What use to be discussed in almost inaudible whispers until the introduction of erectile dysfunction pills, is now talk about openly by everyone everywhere. The relaxed ambiance has allowed men to seek treatment. Men are taking to health providers and partners about erectile dysfunction treatments.

But before trying any ED treatments, be very sure you have erectile dysfunction. The inability to have an erection after an all night party, or after a stressful week at work does not meet the criteria for the treatment. Nor is the inability to get another erection too soon after ejaculation or orgasm. The truth is, men occasionally have erection problems, and most partners can be swayed into understand this.

Erectile dysfunction is the consistent inability to get and keep an erection firm enough to have intercourse. The ability to get an erection can be consistent (can’t get it up at all), or inconsistent (sometimes you can sustain one briefly). If any of these scenarios occur regularly, and I do mean regularly, its time to seek treatment.

Treatment does not necessarily mean that you take erection dysfunction pill. There could be many reasons for what you are experiencing. There may be an underlying medical condition causing ED. Taking medication for some illnesses such as hypertension and diabetes may be one reason. Another reason could be psychological, derive from stress and depression. Your first option should be to see your doctor before initiating treatment.


Male Sexual Health Problems

October 16, 2005

Male sexual health problems are still conventionally coupled with two people, sexual partners, experiencing unfulfilled sexual intimacy with one another. These difficulties are often resolved by communication, sharing of feelings, and medical treatment for the causes of impotence.

Despite these popular proven principles, most men still believe good sex has to do with scoring and sustaining an erection. Failing to accomplish this can lead to severe anxiety.

The development of effective drugs like viagra has alleviated the pain in men confronted with these anxieties. For men who are at risk, taking these medications would only procrastinate the unpleasantries of consulting their health professionals, and communicating with their partners, instead of effectively treating the real cause of erectile dysfunction.


Erectile Dysfunction May Be Sign of Cardiovascular Ailment

September 25, 2005

Most male health researchers have refocused their studies on ED. They are concerned that in most men, the problem of erectile dysfunction may be more physiological rather than psychological.

By carefully examining the arteries of men with ED, it was discovered that there is more flexibility in the arteries of men without erectile dysfunction. Conversely, lower flexibility of arteries reduces blood flow through critical blood vessels.

Furthermore, as blood flows through the vascular system, nitric oxide is absorbed through the inner layers of the vessels, which makes them expand, facilitating better blood flow. Nitric oxide is the key to erectile dysfunction. Hence, reduced blood flow to the penis means a reduced nitric oxide uptake.

Nitric oxide is also an anti-atherosclerotic compound that prevents hardening of the arteries, which causes cardiovascular disease.
